Highlights for Wednesday, 18 September 2013
UNFCCC

On Wednesday, COP 11 convened in two parallel sessions throughout the day. The CRIC held its second and third sessions, completing consideration of documents on: the overall report on the fourth reporting and review process; promotion and strengthening of relationships with other relevant conventions and international organizations; collaboration with the GEF; and best practices in the implementation of the Convention. The CST held its third and fourth sessions, addressing: improvement of knowledge management, including traditional knowledge, best practices and success stories, through the Scientific Knowledge Brokering Portal; and reshaping the operation of the CST in line with the Strategy.

Six side events took place during the day on the following topics: rehabilitation approaches of land degradation in the desert; women empowerment for sustainable land management (SLM); planting trees by playing online games; the Scientific Knowledge Brokering Portal of the UNCCD; improving SLM and UNCCD policy-practice interaction in sub-Saharan Africa; building the resilience of landlocked developing countries to the impacts of climate change and desertification, land degradation and drought (DLDD); DLDD for forests and non-forest trees; carbon sequestration as a valuable global benefit of SLM.

The theme of the day at the Rio Conventions Pavilion was the “Target Setting Approach.” Sessions explored the themes of: monitoring DLDD from the bottom up; a target-setting approach for a stronger UNCCD; practical tools for monitoring and assessment of DDLD; bridging the gap with conventions and national legislation on drylands biodiversity; and policy options and lessons learned from 75 years of US experience in pursuing land-degradation neutrality at the national and sub-national level.
